Family Service Opportunities

OOMS family and friends - you are welcome to join us for our monthly Family Service events! Our staff has worked hard to put together one event per month for OOMS staff, students, family, and friends to get out in the community and help serve others. See details below!

 

UPCOMING OOMS Family Service Opportunities

 

NOVEMBER 2017 - Holiday Giving Drives

During the holiday season, help those less fortunate with one of the many opportunities provided.

DECEMBER 2017 - MoMM Foundation Holiday Blessings

Each year the MoMM Foundation helps make the holidays special for families in need around Central Ohio.  This year the MoMM Foundation adopted 130 families!!! Orange Middle school students and staff will provide gifts for close to 15 of these families!  The MoMM Foundation supplies holiday gifts for all of the children in the family and provides them all with a winter coat, pajamas, and a stocking.  For our December family service opportunity we will be helping the MoMM Foundation deliver these items to families in Central Ohio. 

 

If you would like to deliver Holiday Blessings to one or more families, please sign up here.  We will meet at the Westerville Jaycee Pool on Saturday, December 16th at 1:00PM.  

 


The past 2017-2018 OOMS Family Service Opportunities

OCTOBER 2017 – Make a Difference Day

Are you looking for a service opportunity for your family?  Check out this amazing event for families offered through Connections Volunteer Center:

On October 28th, Connections will help Delaware County celebrate National Make A Difference Day by gathering volunteers for a morning of service to our Senior Community and to area non-profits.  Volunteers will gather that morning at Camp Lazarus, on Rt. 23 just South of Delaware, and have a light breakfast and jobs are assigned to volunteers. The volunteers then go out all over the county to do good works. Volunteers then return to camp with their paperwork and share their stories and enjoy some delicious hot dogs.  Individuals, families, and groups are welcome to participate.  All ages are welcome.  Adult supervision is required and students can not be dropped off. Registration is open on the Connections Volunteer Center website.

We hope to see you there!

 


Reflecting on 2016-2017 OOMS Family Service Opportunities

  
SEE WHAT OUR FAMILIES HAVE DONE!
 
JANUARY 2017 – Agora Christian Services: Sorting clothing that was donated to a free store for those in need.
 
OOMS students, family, and staff braved the cold of January 21st in a warehouse in downtown Columbus to help sort donated clothing by gender and size. OOMS teacher Phil Callaghan set up this partnership with the MoMM Foundation, a charity who collects donated items year-round and distributes to local organizations for people in need. The sorted clothing then goes to a free store, where it is available at no cost for those in need.
